EastEast Magazine

DEADLINE:20 November 2020

EastEast magazine invites artists, researchers, scholars, thinkers, and writers to offer up projects and stories based around the theme of its upcoming issue, (no) borders.


  • Artists, researchers, scholars, thinkers, and writers
  • Those willing to experiment with the idea of (no) borders and research these questions: What is the function and meaning of borders? Which borders are benign and which are malign? How can we cross real and imaginary borders? Who sets the borders? Is it possible to live in a world without borders? How can we overcome the borders of individualistic society? How do humans and nonhumans live within and without borders?


The authors of three winning proposals will be invited to develop them into full-scale materials that will be published in EastEast in February 2021. Each finalist will receive an honorarium in the amount of 250 USD. At least five other authors will get a chance to have their materials featured in EastEast’s special sections.


To participate in the open call, please send a 300-word abstract introducing your text or project to
